KSHB-TV NAME CHRISTA DUBILL AND KEVIN HOLMES LEAD ANCHORS
Kansas City, Mo. – KSHB-TV, Kansas City’s 41 Action News station, named award-winning broadcasters Christa Dubill and Kevin Holmes lead anchors for the station’s Monday through Friday early and late evening newscasts. Dubill, who has been with KSHB for 11 years, currently co-anchors 41 Action News at 4:00 p.m., as well as 41 Action News at 6:00 p.m. Holmes is currently an anchor/reporter, anchoring 41 Action News at 6:30 p.m. while field reporting for other 41 Action News newscasts. In their new roles, Dubill and Holmes will co-anchor KSHB’s 5:00 p.m., 6:00 p.m., 6:30 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. weekday newscasts.
“Throughout my career I’ve had the chance to work on many different newscasts at all hours of the day, and I’ve loved every minute of it. What an honor to shift my hours a bit to once again spend time with viewers at 10:00 p.m. And bonus! I get to team up with the admirable Kevin Holmes and the rest of the amazing crew,” said Dubill. “When I started my journalism career I never imagined I would be in a great place like Kansas City. Now, I can’t imagine being anywhere else. I’m excited to tell more of the stories that makes this such a great city and to work with such a great team,” added Holmes.
“Christa and Kevin are both excellent journalists. They are also passionate about our communities and telling its stories. I’m excited for both of them,” said Steve Watt, General Manager for KSHB/KMCI-TV.
Dubill and Holmes replace Mike Marusarz and Rhiannon Ally, who are leaving KSHB to take an opportunity that works better for their family. Marusarz and Ally are one of the country’s few married couples who co-anchor a local television newscast together.
Dubill and Holmes begin their new roles on Monday, April 15, 2019.
